The other day, I was innocently driving to work. The express way is under heavy construction, so I got on to the 'express' lane. Which meant about 20mph. Right as I got on, there was a car by the side of the road. I glanced over for a second, and when I looked back the guy in front of me had stopped short. That's a fancy way of saying I thought he wasn't going to stop while I glanced away for a second.
So I slammed on the brakes, and hit him. He was still in the process of stopping, so the back end of his car was up, and I went under his bumper for the most part. He went into the guy ahead of him. Then the guy behind me hit me.
No one was hurt. But, as you can see in the post below, my car is D.E.D. dead. I got a call from my insurance agency just now that we can get a check as soon as we decide. At least I have a Dodge Charger as a rental.
So I'm thinking of getting a Mazda M3 or a Scion xB, although on a friend's recommendation, I'm checking out the Subaru Outback.
The last thing I\we need right now is another car payment.
